About Lise

Hi! Screenwriter here, managed by Melanie Backer.

Credits include: 2018 Inaugural Black List/Women in Film Feature Lab selectee; 2017 Nicholl Fellowship semi-finalist; AFF semi-finalist, and other contest placements.

I co-chair the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild and have worked as a reader for major script competitions. In 2017, I was one of five writers selected to write ten short scripts apiece for San Antonio Film Commission -- a fun gig.

Early writing includes articles, essays, stories and a couple of books.

On a personal note, I'm married with two grown sons, have lived in seven states, worked at NSA thirteen years, and also lived overseas (UK and Australia) for nine years.

Unique traits: Learning is food. Get a fresh supply daily. Know your source.
